Shenzhen Min Ai Disabled Children’s Welfare Center helps physically and mentally challenged children who are unable to go to normal schools. The center’s main goal is to build self-confidence, teach skills and improve the communication abilities and daily lifestyle of those children. They also assist families in adapting with their situation.
The center is qualified by the Shenzhen Disabled People Association as a disabled children education and training organization. The center offers specialized education for challenged children, rehabilitation training, psychological treatment, medical care, nursing and nutritional help. Children are taught through music, games, acting, videos and sense harmonization.
Min Ai receives only a very small subsidy from the government, so most of the money necessary to run the center comes from donations.
I have worked with a mentally disabled child before. His parents were not accepting of the fact that he needed special care and help, so they placed him in a normal school. He constantly hurt other children because he simply didn’t know how to control his body and was very scared. That experience made me realize that centers like Min Ai are extremely important in giving disabled individuals a chance for a happy and functional life.
This journey is dedicated to Min Ai and Amcha Ghar charities because both organizations deal with helping the weakest in their societies - children born in unfortunate conditions.
Our future is vulnerable because our children are our future. We cannot offer a home to every child we see on the street, nor can we miraculously cure disabilities, but we can still do something to help.
